Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Lisa! I'm sorry you received a scent you were not expecting. We love the herbaceous smell of the Pure Basil Essential Oil, though it is slightly camphorous which can be surprising. It's also great for blending as seen in the Circle Swirled Soap in Column Mold tutorial! I will email you personally to discuss this further.
